Online Operation Mayhold

Shaaakaa!
I like it :)

A couple things I'd change though:
Possibly no walking animation while jumping
Make the jump higher
I got a bug where I can't select any different weapons before the level. I cannot see any besides the standard ones and the Axe and the Pole. The others just blink for a millisecond and then dissappear. They are there because my cursor changes but I can't select them. This might be hard to reproduce.

Ah I see ;P.

I think I showed enough (Obviously I didn't go into as much detail about them as I could have), but you'll be able to see what they're capable of fairly soon.

Infact, I'll try and have the update on the site within a few hours (I'll post to let you know).

---

EDIT: The Update that some have been waiting for...

Latest Version

To Do:

~ Fix Overskill Meter

See the bar which keeps looping? It's currently broken but I tested it in the earlier weapon testing level, basically, when you get a certain amount of kills/headshots, a spree of all different kinds of zombies will spawn.

~ Tidy up the menu.

You will notice an incredibly bland/messy/crappy menu, which looks similar to how it always has, I plan to make it look nicer at some point.

~ Add Anti-Zombie Triggers to the current 3 levels.

You may remember the Trigger Gun, you currently have no use for it :).

~ Add Milestone Events for levels 1 and 2.

This was a last minute thing I added yesterday, using the PDEG I created an explosion set to occur roughly at the time of the Shark Zombie's spawn enable time (which is 3 minutes in to the level), the milestone events are basically some kind of explosion or wreckage which cause the final Zombies to start spawning, you'll notice this happen in level 3.

I also need to add a screen shaking script for the explosions.

~ Properly adjust and decide on which weapons are unlocked at what stage.

You get to try out some different weapons in this update, you start out with 2 guns (1 useless) and a choice of either a pipe or an axe, but as you level up you'll find more weapons for use, I need to decide on which ones are unlocked at what stage, so that you don't end up with a giant lazer cannon on level 2.

~ More Details to the Current Levels and More Levels

Some may know that Level 4 will be set in a Hospital, from there it will go in to the streets, right now I have Unit 1's Boat, a Barricaded Radio Station, and a Sewer.

Also, you'll notice that the Sewer is the only level with any true detail (and even then, it's not alot), so I must add on to that and continue to work on the other levels.

For the screen shake, perhaps this would help?

I dunno much about flash though. :(

[del]Oh, and I found a bug. In the weapon selection menu when you hover over the weapons that would be there, but are not since you haven't unlocked them the cursor still changes.[/del] Already found.

I would like to point out that "S" does nothing, contrary to the beginning level...

Thanks for testing!

The walk motion while jumping is a glitch that I intend to fix, however the jump height is fine, thanks!

The others just blink for a millisecond and then dissappear. They are there because my cursor changes but I can't select them. This might be hard to reproduce.
Interesting, I'll look into that when I can, thanks!

Yes, I am ;O.

For the screen shake...
I know how I will do the screen shake, I just haven't added it yet, but thanks :).

S is not supposed to do anything.

I know it doesn't do anything, so why do you say it does on level 1?
'WASD' is the name that games generally give to the WASD keys for movement controls, I thought people could figure that out.

You wouldn't complain about the Down key doing nothing if I said 'use the arrow keys to move' would you?

No, because arrow keys is a term for any or all of the keys, not nesscarily including the down key, the up key, etc.

However, if you put: "WASD Movement" I would be happy. :)

I don't know if it's been reported already, but I threw the Severed Arm and it flew off screen and then the screen turned all white... Then I died :thdown:
There are some known Severed Arm glitches, but I found a solution for them which I forgot to implement outside the Weapon Test level, will fix it in the next update :).

BTW - This thread has also been added to The Helper Flash Game Index in the Topaz Section
Thanks ;)!

Umm... Exactly? Arrow Keys = Any/All of the arrow keys, WASD Keys = Any/All of the WASD keys, why is that so hard to understand?

To have some sort of use for the down or s key.
There really is no point, but jumping and ducking is fun.

Macho Zombie

After alot of heavy L4D playing, I felt compelled to remake the Tank in to the this game, it will be available in a special game-mode (where you fight hundreds of only this zombie).

So far, the Macho Zombie chases you at a slightly-slower-than-you speed, it is able to hit you for massive damage, or throw concrete at you for even more massive damage.

Concrete will always reduce your health by approximately 80% (subject to change), it cannot kill you but it can leave you incredibly vulnerable.

So, here is a picture of the L4D tank:



I'll get some form of screenshots or previews up of the Macho within the next 2 weeks ;P.

Not sure if people said this before but the aimer doesn't go where your mouse is... which is annoying. The aimer goes like slightly over your mouse so you have to aim lower to aim where you want to.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
